Back Bone: KeepItHandmade Auction Items Revealed

0

I created this little collage showcasing the items I will have up for bid for the Instagram Artist Auction taking place tomorrow at @keepithandmade. All of these items have been revealed on their page so go check them out and give the listings some love and shares while you wait for the auction to open.

This Artist Auction is a great opportunity for you to stay home and still get to shop! But this time you will be helping all the artists/vendors/small businesses that are participating. When the auction opens tomorrow at 7pm CST just visit the @keepithandmade Instagram page, go to the item you want and comment your bid amount. Be sure to read the caption description of every item for their starting bid and BIN details.

I would like to showcase 1 of my items as it is a special framed print of the art piece I drew and gifted to my dear friend Sid Haig. As most of you know Sid passed away last year so I have chosen to give all of my proceeds from this item to his wife, “my sista” Suzie. This will help her with the upcoming medical procedures and the expenses she needs help with now more than ever. So if you bid on any of my items please consider bidding on this one as the cause is very dear to my heart and I would really like to raise as much money as I can from this item to help her. You can find, like, share and bid on it HERE!

Happy Bidding!

Stay Spooky!

Back Bone: Keep It Handmade Animal Themed Auction

0

As you all know I love to use my talents to help others in need. I was recently asked to take part in another Instagram Online Artist Auction. This one being a little different then the last as one item must be donated to help a feline friend in need. As a cat mom who has had to spend a lot of money trying to save her own furbabies I could definitely relate and immediately jumped on board.

So with all that said, if you are on Instagram please follow @keepithandmade I will have these 3 items in their upcoming animal themed #artist #auction starting Nov. 13th!

When the auction goes live, look for the special items with paw prints. Those are the items specifically donated by the participating artists to help raise money for kitty Peeta. Which means you can get some holiday shopping done while helping a great cause and supporting artists all at the same time! Win! Win! and Win!

See other ways I have used my artwork to give back in the Back Bone section of my portfolio website!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for helping us continue my Uncle’s fundraising efforts for #TeamRosie! We raised the most money out of all the returning teams. 

On top of it, when our team received the award, Down in the Southland shared stories of Uncle Randy’s past fundraising efforts and announced that moving forward this award will now be called the “Randy Sassano Memorial Award”! His passion and legacy will live on!

Thank you to everyone who donated, shared and helped make this happen! It means the world to our family. My Uncle would be so proud!

Back Bone: Team Rosie Update!

0

I took this photo last year at my Uncle Randy’s birthday dinner. Little did we know it would be the last time we would all be together to celebrate with him. As you can see Rosie is front and center and he is smirking at her as my Aunt Mary holds up the cake as we all sang Happy Birthday to him. She always had a way to make him smile. 

I share this photo with all of you because this Friday would’ve been Uncle Randy’s birthday and ironically enough we have moved into the 1st place spot for the most money raised! What a wonderfully timed milestone. This is all due to your support, shares, and donations!  He would be so happy and proud of what we have accomplished so far and would be rooting for us to keep going until we reach our team goal! 

If you have not donated yet please know that any amount is ok. This is not about who donates the most but about giving what you can. It all adds up and it all goes to the same wonderful cause.

If you have already donated please continue to share my fundraising link https://give.classy.org/nicatnight with your connections on social media an/or email. Your shares are what informs people what we are trying to accomplish. It’s free to share it and only takes a moment of your time. That moment could lead to wonderful things. Look what it’s done so far!

Thank you again to everyone who has helped us get to where we are right now! We could not have done it without you. My family is so grateful for all of your support.

Go TEAM ROSIE!

Back Bone: Team Rosie Lives On In All Of Us

As some of you may know, we lost my Uncle Randy unexpectedly this year. What you may or may not know is he was incredibly passionate about supporting Down in the Southland on behalf of his daughter Rosemary. A few years ago he started Team Rosie to help raise money for their Annual Fundraiser Walk.

This is the last thing he posted on Facebook before he passed away…

Back Bone: The Wishmasters Project – Making Mobility for Grimm Artwork

CaptureI have joined up with The Wishmasters Project for this week’s upcoming auction. They do auction-style fundraising on Instagram to help raise money for those in need. As someone who has had their own fair share of medical financial hardships, I know how hard it can be. That is why I am always trying to find ways I can use my art to give back the way others had helped me.

The current auction is to help Jessica Gimareli of GrimmArtworksDesigns who was in a terrible car accident with multiple life-threatening injuries. She is now wheelchair bound with permanent nerve damage and suffers from chronic pain. She is in need of a vehicle with a special accessible foot pedal device to assist her with driving. The goal of this auction is to help Jessica become mobile again.

The item I have donated is a 2 piece Chucky & Tiff Portrait Print Set. Winner of the auction will receive both a Friends Til The End print and a Barbie Eat Your Heart Out Print. Both will be 8.5″ x 11″ in size.
